5. Got an interesting story on this techo evolution

I worked at Intel starting in 1984. At the time the IBM PC with Intel microprocessor was just starting to take off. Sounds pretty cool and something you would just accept. The weird thing here was that after much pleading from Intel people, esp engineers, to Andy Grove (Intel CEO-and future Person of the Year on Time magazine) to have these for our use he said no, there would never be PC's in every engineers cubicles. Our course this is what I was told, having never asked Andy for his version.

Things did change and we did end up with computers in our cubicles.
